Stargazing Bailey, The Santa Maria Observatory

Over the summer AstroTours.org partnered with the YMCA of Northern Colorado to provide educational astronomy programs to their youth camp in Santa Maria.

Camp Santa Maria is located just outside of Bailey Colorado just a little over half an hour outside of Denver. Camp Santa Maria has exceptionally dark skies and a large field offering a large view of the night sky.

The first week we offered training on how to use the telescopes and equipment for the YMCA staff. The next weeks AstroTours provided a guide to give experience and lead astronomy programs once a week for the summer.




Camp Santa Maria can be rented as a venue to host events such as weddings and you can opt to make stargazing part of your private event.
